DSK Jewelry!! + Reviews!

Stephanie, from DSK Jewelry sent me a love pack, because I won her "Guess my age in this photo" contest. lol. She's adorable no matter what age she is...she's the cutest thing ever! I love this girl.
I also ordered her Pegasus+Heart Necklace because I've been lemming one since she posted her pictures of them. This is the most unique necklace i own!!!

The Love Pack

She sent me masks!! I am obsessed with these now!!

Japanese Candies, always a plus.
Nana loved the coffee flavored candy.
And I need to represent DSK business card- friggin awesome!

LV Teddy Bear Charm!!
How cute is he? I named him Louie!
I put him on my phone for now; but I think I might put him on my key chain.

Look at his Blingin' collar!


Onto my favorite part.
I got the amethyst heart (because it's my birthstone)- and Steph picked out the Pegasus pendant- GOD I AM IN LOVEEEEEE!
If you haven't order yet from Steph- click here now!!!!
Picture heavy, because I wanted you all to get a good idea of the necklace from different angles.


I was sooo happy and proud to represent DSK Jewelry in this photo!
(haha, CHEESY, I know!)







Review:
Skinfood's Sugar Bloom Shadow Box #2- natural
I used the first and last shade of this palette.
Lately I've been into just all-over shimmery eyes w/dark liner and lashes.
Classic, simple, clean, and easy look.
Remember how I said I was disappointed in the last shade of this palette?
I said it was chalky, but I take that back- in this look I am wearing that last shade all over my lid and underneath my lashline and I LOVE it!! It applies much better with a base underneath.
I used the first peachy-pink shade on my highlight (brow-bone).

NYX Felt Tip Liners
WOW!!! I am HIGHLY impressed with these liners.
These are my current HG liners.
Even though the felt-tip pen is a little over-sized, with the right application, you can draw on a thick line (by using the edge) or a thin line (by using the very tip of the brush).
The color lasts ALLLLLL day.
My favorite shades are Extreme Black & Dark Brown.
Jet black is way too sheer in my opinion, and not worth the purchase.

Also wearing NYX cream blush in Glow!
Perfect everyday shade.
Wearing my favorite MAC #10 Lashes (MAC PRO only).





This look was created using the Fasio Palette in I-3.
It's a beautiful, wearable, everyday palette.
I used the first shade ALL over my lid.
The two middle shades in the crease.
And the last shade to deepen the crease, as well as go over my liner on the bottom waterline.



Review:
Shiseido Majolica Majorca:
Lash Expander Frame Plus
I FOUND MY HG MASCARA!!!!!!!
OMG EVERYONE GO BUY THIS NOW!!!
First of all, I have NEVER in my LIFE, found a mascara that holds my curl (after using an eyelash curler).
Also, I've never found such an amazingly LENGTHENING mascara.
This one truly truly truly lengthens and holds curl! I promise.
I'll admit, I was definitely hesitant at first when I saw the brush, it's very odd looking.
I am used to the typical mascara brush, but this actually applies the mascara even better.
If you buy this, you WILL not be disappointed. I'm serious.


Wearing NYX cream blush in Glow.
I've been wearing this every day!
ugh, excuse the breakouts on my chin.

See my NYX felt tip liner? I love it. So easy to apply and stays put-
doesn't even smudge one bit.

I had no idea my lashes could look sooo long!!! AHH my new HG Mascara:
Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus!!!






Tommy's birthday was on Friday.
I made him a cake and it turned out way too moist (because I took it out too soon of the oven), so when I started putting my homemade icing on it, the cake started to break up. LOL
It was a kitchen disaster- but Nana and I had some good laughs. :)

Tommy, thank you for being such an amazing friend.
Love you!!
The disaster cake- but it was very yummy!

100th Post!


Hey Gorgeous Gals!!
I LOVE reading your comments- they make me smile :)
And I am always happy to do swatches.
If you ever have a request, just email me or CBOX me, and I will gladly be accommodating.
So, last night water spilled on my MacBook Pro (the laptop Joe gave me)... :(
I took it into the Apple Store and they said it would cost around $500 AT LEAST to fix it.
I do NOT have that kind of money- I was sooo bummed.
So, the guy at the "Genius Bar" offered to disconnect my keypads (which is what's being affected the most from the water damage)- so I went to Wal-Mart and bought a USB keyboard to plug in- and now I'm able to type. But now, my laptop is more like a desktop.
My friend Tommy is coming down from Torrance to reformat and install a new hard-drive on my other MAC laptop so I can use that in the meantime, as I save up to fix my MacBook Pro.
I just love my MacBook Pro better because the screen is HUGE- I think it's like 19" or something like that.
Shows you how much I am addicted to the computer. OMG, I feel naked without using it. How sad. lol

So I've been getting alot of reader questions, and I thought a great way to answer them is on a blog post. Because maybe some of you might have the same type of Q's.
Oh, and btw, this is my 100th post- YAY!

Soffee asks:
What kind of Camera do you use?
I use a FujiFilm FinePix S700 Digital Camera (7.1 MegaPixels).

AbcGrrrL asks:
Is your necklace Disney related? (the necklace is worn in the last entry)
Yes! It's called Disney Couture- I guess, higher-end Disney Jewelry. It says "Believe" & it has a little tinkerbell on it. I got it at Karmaloop.com (LINK). I got it for 60% off- they have the BEST sales.

Sher asks:
You work at Sephora?
No, I actually work for a skincare line called Cosmedicine. I go into Sephora's, Ulta's, & Macy's to help train the sales associates on the Cosmedicine products- but also to help sell (brand support).

Lindah asks:
Is the NYX from the anniversary sale? And Tell us how you like the doll eye mascara.
Yes, this was from the 50% off NYX sale! And I tried the doll eye mascara for the first time today and I LOVE IT!

I'm going crazy trying to find that perfect gold eye shadow that you can just wear alone. any suggestions?
I love these kinds of questions! Okay, there are a few to check out. First, I've been wearing MAC Style Warriors e/s in Soft Force ALL over my eye (lid and brow bone), which just black liner and lashes- and I LOVE this shadow- it definitely has a golden sheen to it. Other ones to try are:



Left to Right:
1-Motif (permanent), 2-Soft Force (LE style warriors), 3-Nanogold (LE), 4-Dreammaker (LE but possibly being re-promoted in August), 5-Grand Entrance (LE but possibly being re-promoted in August), 6-Solar White (LE- but it will be a part of a quad for Nordstrom- launching MAY 30th, I believe), 7-Retrospeck (permanent), & 8-Flip (LE).

AbcGrrrL asks:
Purple Rite was actually on my wishlist, its so dark! Do you like it much? Do you have Lavender Whip & Fashion mews?
Yes I have all three. And Purple Rite is DEFINITELY darker, but not as PURPLE as lavender Whip and Fashion Mews- which kind of bummed me out. In my next FOTD, I'll try and do a look with purple rite. :)


Hope this helps ladies!!! :)
